Early childhood development has gained increasing importance as part of national agendas to achieve social and economic goals. Regional guidelines and action plans have been developed, but progress across nations varies. Chapters in the book will analyze child policies and issues, critically examine progress on alignment between policies and practices, and propose recommendations for advocacy and implementation that may advance the early childhood development agenda throughout the Caribbean.
Submit your chapter by Microsoft Word email attachment by JUNE 1, 2013 in order to be considered for inclusion in the book.

2. Call for Participants in Research Study
I am looking for tenure track faculty who will be new assistant professors in the fall in any field or discipline who identify as feminist. They do not have to be in the US, but should be in a position working toward tenure (however, English speaking would be necessary due to my limited second language skills). I am hoping to conduct a longitudinal qualitative study about academic feminists and want to bound it by the various points in the tenure process.

Speakeasy was a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal of research and creative art, run and published by students of the University at Buffalo and sponsored by the Gender Institute from 2008 to 2012. While all editors were UB students, submissions were written by students from across the country and worldwide.
Speakeasy published innovative essays, fiction, poetry, and visual artwork which concern gender, feminism, and sexuality at their center. Topics included in the journal have encompassed the history of sexuality; women’s health issues; abortion; gender and economics; constructions of masculinity and femininity; the body and representation of gender; and sexuality in art and literature, among many others.
